Virtual Catch Ups For CF Kids

Our kids with CF virtual catch ups have been continuing this month. With COVID impacting our lives at the moment we feel, more than ever, online connection and community building is important, and our CF kids are jumping in to this challenge and joining us for our virtual catch ups.

We have managed to connect with 8 of our CF kids – ranging from 6 years to 11 years over two online sessions. Each session lasts between 15 and 30 mins and are relatively casual in nature. A chance for the kids to hop online, say hi to other kids living with CF and to get to know each other virtually.

Our occupational therapist, Mel, and social worker, Haylee, facilitate the conversation – keeping the chat flowing and navigating questions, show and tells, and anything else that comes up. The kids are very comfortable with the online chat – and are excited to say hi to their new CF friends and talk about themselves.

We always ask the kids to do a show and tell and to update us on where they are at with school and general life. Some questions often come up around CF routines: how to remember medications for school, how do the kids do their physio, how do the kids go with telling their friends and class about their CF. This is a great opportunity for the kids to brainstorm new ideas of how to live well with CF and to express their feelings about what goes on for them with CF.
